  1. Caught up with the Randy Pitchford story.

    Stop this timeline, I want off.

  2. Breakout the razors people, beards aren't cool anymore.

      so does this mean people will start referring to ted cruz as sweeny todd instead of the zodiac killer

  3. So what's happening with Team Sonic Racing now?

    >Open's thread

    Oh... Ooooh....

  4. Guess Joshua Tree makes it to the list of things we've lost under the Trump administration.

  5. ....Forget the Avengers book, we should have gotten an Agents of Wakanda book.

      I'd read the hell out of that, lol. I hope they get a spin-off book or something.

      Also I'm upset I never heard of Kenneth Hale before. What an incredible origin story.

  6. The year of Miles Morales > The year of Luigi

    2019 needs to stop. I want out of this timeline.

      Can we not discuss or link to inappropriate stuff like this on the forums, please

      seems this post got off on the wrong foot

  8. That moment where Marvel comics really fucks up, but later turns out to be a win:

    https://www.resetera.com/threads/comics-ot-january-2019-young-man-you-too-can-become-a-hero.90557/page-21#post-16582227

    That's some Lena Dunham-esque shit right there.

  9. Watched two 80's films back to back. One being Revenge of the Nerd for the first time. There is so much wrong with these movies to unpack.

    But lets start with the racist japanese depections. Was this a thing back in the 80's? Why?

      it's kind of amazing fox actually had plans for a remake of RotN back in the mid-2000s with their short-lived fox atomic label

      unsurprisingly, even before the label's demise took the remake down with it; the project was stalling due to script disagreements and subject matter

      I’m an 80’s baby and I’ve never heard of this movie. But going by this status it looks like that was a good thing. 

      As for your question yes it was a thing in the 80’s and it was really bad. All part of the “Japan bashing” that was so prevalent. By the time the 90’s rolled around it had significantly died down.

      @Kiah Yeesh, okay good to know. And yeah Revenge of the Nerds is really... calling it problematic is an understatement.

      It's when a few bullied kids go for the nuclear option as their only hope. This included raping the lead bad guy's girl (the girl later dumps her boyfriend for the nerd/rapist cause he's better in the sack), sexual harassment, peeping on the sorority house via installed cameras, and publicly distributing nude photos of said sorority house to people on campus to win a contest.

      Also there's a blatantly flamboyant gay character, who's just that, the gay character stereotype.

      What was the other movie you watched? I'm trying to get my crush to watch Miami Connection with me since she enjoys 80's movies.

    5. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      It was called Private Resort, which featured a pair of Sumo Wrestling hotel guests (which have an actual sumo wrestling mat in their hotel room) It also wasn't a good time. It's one of those films that rewards a shitty person on top of all the bullshit stunts and harassment that gets pulled.

    6. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Isn't that the same problem all those cartoon centric youtube channels have with Spongebob these days?

    7. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I guess? only this had more nudity, and Johnny Depp ruining his friends life nearly getting the guy gunned down.

    8. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Not a fan of Johnny Depp anyway, so I'll pass.

  10. Pretty good video on current spidey comics.

    Edit: WTF @ leaving Harry with the blame!? Why woul- *sigh*

      Yeah, Nick Spencer's run has been great so far. People were worried because of Secret Empire, but I had a good feeling about it since Superior Foes of Spider-Man and Ant-Man were great.

  11. Just finished seeing Bumblebee. Its so weird watching a transformers movie and the woman character not getting a rectal exam by the camera man.

    1. Failinhearts

      Yet so refreshing not to see it.

  12. Man everybody's just firing shots at One more Day.

      Miles pulled a one more day, but it was for an actual good reason.

      You'd have to read the book. It doesn't really show what went down but you get a few images that helps paint what went down.

  13. Champions #1

    OH FUCK! Zub went there.

  14. It's too bad the world order had to give up good Superman and Batman books for Spider-man to finally have a great run again.

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I don't know if I would say Batman is bad right now, per say at least. I think it's just completely lost where it's going atm. Every story feels somewhat aimless without an idea of where to go, determined to destroy anything that could give Batman happiness, let it be Nightwing, Catwoman, or what have you. 

      It could be interested, but it's pretty aimless, and is wearing thin. That said, the Batman Annual that focused in on Alfred and Batman last month was actually really good.

    2. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      The big reason I brought these books together was because Supes and Bat's feels like where Spider-man was in the Slott run. Nobody really feels like themeselves and only acts a certain way because the story depends on that. Which is why we got moments like Superman leaving Zod to die after coming to aid him, or Gordon turning on batman after he backhanded him once.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      You also forgot to mention yet another Doc-Ock Spidey in exchange for a good Spidey run.

    4. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      I tried to forget. You'd think in the metoo time they'd try and stay clear of the creepy obsessive stalker that hijacked a man's  body to have sex with a woman but, here you go.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      "Peter Parker sucks and is the greatest villain to Spider-Man..."

      "...Now excuse me while I have Doc Ock become the greatest monster on the planet before becoming a main protagonist for 30 issues!" 

    6. Balding Spider

      Balding Spider

      Don't read Spider-geddon. The fact that he's a big reason the Inheritors return to power and that he's pretty much let off the hook after cleaning up his own mess will drive you mad.

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      The Inheritors are godawful as villains, and are a big reason why Spiderverse is no where near as good as the movie.

    8. Wraith

      Batman backhanding gordon was IMO just the last straw in a strain that had been building up for a while. I actually think it was a cool twist. 

      My eyes rolled out of my head though when flashpoint batman showed up. 

  15. Happy New Year everyone, and good night.

  16. Another 3 hours till 2019 but Trump going out like he is on twitter confirming he's bitch made is the perfect send-off to this year for me.

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Oh,  he's getting impeached? That's pleasant news.

      I just hope that we get out of the Middle East, now that would make for a great New Year for a lot of families.

      @JokerJovahexeonJoranvexeon I/we wish. Naw he's just having another twitter episode basically pissy that he's not a recognized hero or something. You know, like a snowflake.

    4. Treacher

      Treacher

      Nothing new. Though the twitter tantrums , did remind me that  2018 ended with North and South Korea slightly improving ties. Very tense but pleasant that it didn't escalate for the worse, may 2019 keep the ball rolling on that.

  17. If any of y'all want to ride 2018 out with a good movie, The Terminator is free on Youtube:

     

  18. My resolution was going to be going back to school but since I've already done that in late 2018...

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      Same only I went back in early 2018...after a near 10 year hiatus mind you!

  19. Decided to watch the Youtube Rewind before going into 2019. This was like if proud boys came up with a sketch in an afternoon while drinking.

    This sucked, hard and long.

  23. Don't. Just don't buy the Infinity Wars comic. Jesus christ it's so awful and dumb.

  24. Spider-geddon only did 3 things right in it's finale

    Spoiler
    1. Miles got the Enigma Force and wielded Leopardon's Sword
    2. The Inheritors were defeated in a far more acceptable way than just locking them up
    3. The whole event at least felt shorter.

    But the event was still bad though.

  25. Should've called them the X-men kill Team

     

    1. tailsBOOM!

      tailsBOOM!

      But your name idea has a problem, Professor X wouldn't- oh wait (Kappa)
